Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza has been fined 20 percent of his match fee for a breach the ICC code of conduct during the tri-nation one-day tournament final against Sri Lanka on Saturday. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka opener Danushka Gunathilaka was given an official reprimand for another incident during the same game.

While this was Gunathilaka's first offence, Mashrafe has been sanctioned for the second time since the introduction of the revised code in September 2016.

The incident involving Mortaza took place during Sri Lanka's sixth over when the captain ran close to Kusal Mendis after he fell to Mehidy Hasan, yelling loudly and looking directly at the opener in a manner that could have provoked an aggressive reaction, an ICC press release said.

The incident involving Gunathilaka happened in the sixth over of Bangladesh's innings when, following the dismissal of Tamim Iqbal, he yelled loudly at the departing batsman, which prompted the opener to turn and face him.

Both players admitted the offences and accepted the sanctions proposed by David Boon of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees. Consequently, there was no need for a formal hearing.
